    1. I definitely learned from the book, but the narrow scope made for a depressing tour through the historically rich Lower Manhattan Too much of what went wrong who was oppressed and how without much social and cultural context What could have been uplifting, especially given NYC s role in major social movements, left me rather depressed and in no small part because I have read so many other NYC history books that I knew what wonderful details could have been added to paint a fuller picture.

    2. if you ve got folks coming into town who want to see the sights, you can get on one of those awful busses and hear how a bunch of rich guys built things on the backs of the people they exploited or you can stroll through streets alive with echoes of struggle, from the labor movement to civil rights a great tool for teachers who want to do something other than take students to the stock exchange or the court house.

    3. I visit New York City three or four times a year, but I hate being a tourist, so this book has come in handy It gets four stars rather than five only because it can be a bit outdated, mentioning certain buildings are X when they have since been converted into Y, but that s certainly not the fault of the author.
